Today (for lack of a better title)

Howdy y'all!
Today life went on pretty much as normal. However, this afternoon we had Grandpa and Grandma over to eat pork chops. Yum! I could have eaten the whole plate! :-) We talked them into playing a few rounds of Bananagrams.
Please excuse the quality.

I think I'll switch back to my regular camera.
Grandpa had been working in Colorado for a while, and we have all missed him VERY much. We are thankful to have him back. My friend, Theron sent me something that would be good for us all to read so I thought I'd post it.

If Jesus came to your house to spend a day or two,
If he came unexpectedly, I wonder what you’d do.
Oh, I know you’d give your nicest room to such an honoured Guest,
And all the food you’d serve to him would be the very best,
And you would keep assuring Him you’re glad to have Him there,
That serving Him in your home is joy beyond compare.

But – when you saw him coming, would you meet him at the door
With arms outstretched in welcome to your Heavenly Visitor?
Or would you have to change your clothes before you let him in?
Or hide some magazines and put the Bible where they’d been?
Would you turn off the radio and hope He hadn’t heard?
And wish you hadn’t uttered that last, loud, hasty word?

Would you hide your worldly music and put some hymnbooks out?
Could you let Jesus walk right in or would you rush about?
And I wonder – if the Saviour spent a day or two with you,
Would you go right on doing the things you always do?
Would you go right on saying the things you always say?
Would life for you continue as it does from day to day?

Would your family conversation keep up its usual pace?
And would you find it hard each meal to say a table grace?
Would you sing the songs you always sing, and read the books you always read
And let Him know the things on which your mind and spirit feed?
Would you take Jesus with you everywhere you’d planned to go?
Or would you, maybe, change your plans for just a day or so?

Would you be glad to have Him meet your very closest friends?
Or would you hope they’d stay away until His visit ends?
Would you be glad to have him stay forever on and on?
Or would you sigh with great relief when he at last was gone?
It might be interesting to know the things that you would do,
If Jesus came in person to spend some time with you.
I can't remember who wrote it, but it was a good encouragement. Have a blessed (late) evening!
